Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943)
When grave robbers open the crypt of Lawrence Talbot (dead four years) they get the surprise of their lives: He isn’t dead. He can’t die because he is the Wolf Man. All the grave robbers do is release him into the world. Believing he wants to die more than anything, Lawrence seeks out Dr. Frankenstein to help him. Dr. Frankenstein is dead, of course, but his daughter, Baroness Frankenstein, is alive. She knows where her father’s diary is that contains all the secrets of life and death. Not only does Lawrence Talbot, the Wolf Man, meet the daughter of Dr. Frankenstein, he also meets, more notably, Frankenstein’s monster, encased in ice beneath the ruined castle. He frees the monster from his icy prison, believing he can also be helped by Dr. Frankenstein’s diary.
